Dear Parents and Friends,
Beginning the first week in November, teachers will post their homework assignments on their web page. I am confident this will increase the home/school connection giving you the parent daily access to your child's academic requirements. As in the past, projects and test dates are available on the teacher's page.
My 5th-8th grade teachers are developing their Google classroom pages whereby, when complete, will be where their assignments will be posted.
Our new Religious Reading Buddy Program on Friday following our mass began with great enthusiasm by all of our students. Their interaction discussing the contents of the literature led to a cooperative experience while enhancing their Religious knowledge base.
Teachers will begin our Second Step Social Skills program on October 24th. Please refer to the letter sent home for details.
Thank you to Mrs. McMasters, a member of the St. Joseph Rosary Society, for her beautiful presentation of the Rosary for our third graders.
Illustrator Ann Engelhart will be visiting SJS on October 27th to present her beautiful illustrations and read her book,
"Adventures in Assisi, On the Path with St. Francis."
Our fall Pathways classes have begun for our 6th, 7th and 8th grade students. The classes this year are Carpentry, Chess, E-Commerce, Shakespeare and The Stock Market Game. These diverse class offerings give our junior high students the opportunity to explore unique educational topics.
